The IDF releases footage from an incident in southern Gaza over the weekend, in which a Hamas operative hurled a grenade and rushed at troops with a knife.

The clip shows soldiers of the Paratroopers Brigade shooting at an unknown target amid an operation near the home of the commander of Hamas’s Khan Younis Brigade, before a grenade explodes near them.

One of the soldiers turns around to see a Hamas operative approaching the troops with a knife. The soldier opens fire, killing the operative.

The IDF says the operative was also armed with another grenade.

No soldiers were hurt in the incident.
